The Word of the Lord, Part 1

April 23, 2017

“The burden of the word of the Lord to Israel by Malachi” (Malachi 1:1).

The prophet Malachi brings God’s message to a discouraged people. When they returned from captivity their expectation of a day of prosperity had not be realized and so they are now questioning God’s love for them. Malachi brings them the word of the Lord that involves a rebuke for their sinfulness but also a message of hope. In today’s message we first consider that Word from God is to be respected. Next week observe that rejecting God’s Word has consequences and finally our duty to hear and obey the Word of God.
